Dementors Before Dinner – Paul’s Tub Talk – May 22

I was getting my groove on listening to the classic rock station yesterday when the dj interrupts my groove thing with this spiel about how terrible the world is using the most inflammatory extremist opinions. And I was like – shut the fuck up, you’re raining on my parade. I flipped that station off. I mean I flipped that station off.

Here’s the thing – it’s not like we don’t know about all this. The only people denying reality are the schills for exxon mobile – you know – the politicians. The rest of us are living with drought AND flooding, living with soldiers returning deeply wounded from a pointless bloodbath, living with the real economic situation – not the dow jones average.

The last thing we need is more soul-sucking fear mongering dementors in our lives. You know – drama queens.

I’m not denying there are individuals creating a lot of trouble on this planet. Individuals. The world isn’t against you or me – specific individuals are. JK Rowling taught us how to deal with them: Grab your wand and cast a Patronus to drive that narcissistic asshole back into the shadows.

Do it with me: Expecto Patronum. No, no, you gotta mean it. Think about the people you love and care about who make you feel loved as well. Now do it again with me: Expecto Patronum.

That’s the spirit!

These whining asshats think the world is going to end and if they keep doing what they’re doing it will. One at a time, put a stop to the stupidity, the ignorance, the fear. Cast your patronum in the face of evil and our love will prevail.
